Reviews for Braised Rabbit
"i liked this recipe, especially the broth/lemon mixture made at the end. we poured that over the rabbit, green beans, and also just ate by itself (the best). i thought the rabbit was rather bland even with that though. i may make it again, but probably not my favorite rabbit recipe."
"I joined just to write a review of this recipe. I have 4 girls (ages 9, 7, 4, 2) and this is the ONLY meal that they ALL eat. They actually lick the bones clean and there are never any leftovers. Sounds crazy, but it's true. Very good recipe."
"First time I've eaten rabbit in a lot of years. I'm so glad I found this recipe. This was very good."
"A definite repeat for this house"
